    I have chickens ranging from chicks to four years old. This month I have lost 2 of my 3 year olds and now a 2 years old is showing the same signs. They get hard to walk, lay on their side, drooping dragging tail, no energy, and at the breathing gets shallow. No scales on the legs. Is normal or do you have any thoughts on the problem

    G’Day from down under teripres [​IMG] Welcome!

    Sorry to hear that your flock is unwell and I hope that the folks on the ER Forum are able to assist.

    I also hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.
